JOHN ROACH DEAD.
John Roach, the great American ship
builder, died last Monday morning at 8
o’clock. The immediate cause of hie
death was a cancer in liis mouth, simi
lar to that which killed Gen. Gran’, but
the indirect cause, as in Grant's case,
was despondency ami disappointment.
He has not been the sauu man since his
failure, caused by Secretary Whitney’s
Action in not accepting the Dolphin,
built for the government.
The cancerous growth had eaten its way
into the side of liis jaw, involving large
arteries. Roach was in great pain all

He occupied a seat at tho bedside, and

the family were admitted to the house
during his closing hours, but nobody

READY LAW UNCONSTITUTIONAL
Judge Strahan, on Monday, declared
the Ready liquor law unconstitutional
in the appeal case from Astoria. Most
of our readers are aware that the plea
was set up by the appellants that the
law was unconstitutional because of its
virtually amending the city charter ol
Astoria. That is, the law placed re
strictions on cities and towns holding
charters granted by the state legislature
and at the same time created a license
fortlie trade in liquor, thoreby having a
double effect. According to constitution
al requirements al! bills must contair
but one auoject matter, and that onli
stated in the title of the bill. Judgi
Strahan considered that the bill collier
ed ill this particular, and therefore ren
dered a decision accordingly. Anothei
little coincident is refered to by the
judge in which lie says he could kill the
law on anotlior point. There is a dis
crepancy between the records of the two
houses, which J. W. Strange, late chic,
clerk of the senate, might also attempt
to charge to the lady clerks. The senate
passed the bill placing the limit of vari
ous liquors at not let»' than one gallon
in certain cases ; the lmwe amended ii
to read “not less than one quart.” am
sent it back to the senate, The senati
concurred in the amendment, but Mi.
Strange in liis message from the senate
to the house still makes it read “one gal
lon.” The Judge says in his npinioi
that if this point was urged it would in
validate the law. This leaves Oregon
without a liquor regulation, hut tho leg
islature will probably repass one in a

of a great scarcity of coal in this city
because the strike of the coal handlers

companies. There is not sufficient coal
in New York City to last two weeks.
Across the North river, however, there
is coal enough to su pply New York for a

coal handlers should extend to the
